Heartland Fresh Family Farm is located in southern Iowa. They raise 100% grass-fed, as well as some pasture raised, but grain finished beef. All the animals are anti-biotic free, raised humanely and treated with respect. They take a sustainable approach to land management and work to mimic Nature’s diversity and create healthy soil, and safe and healthy food. We are helping Heartland Fresh Family Farm with some writing and research projects.
“Given that we have spent our entire lives in agriculture on top of having lived full careers in agribusiness, we have a unique perspective of our country’s food system. We believe there is a better way and that way starts with the fact that every person has the right to know where their food comes from and how it was raised. That right can and should be played out through choice. The choice to spend the time to get to know the farmer who is helping you place safe, wholesome food on your kitchen table for your family.” -Leslie and Mark Huslebus
Leslie, her husband Mark, their sons, Lauren and Ben, and daughter Grace, operate the farm. They do receive some help from a Border Collie, Socks, a pack of felines led by a large tomcat named Rascal. They are southeast Iowa natives and have been involved in agriculture their entire lives.
